Summer is here, and Filipinos know what that means: rising temperatures and rising expenses! The temptation to splurge on vacations, outdoor fun and cooling solutions—which can jack up your electricity bill—is strong.

But fret not because higher expenses don't have to be your summer story. With some strategic planning, you can embrace the warmth without scorching your budget. Home Credit, one of the country’s leading consumer finance companies, is here to help you navigate the season with these cool summer tips and hacks.
Create a summer budget
Summer is the time to rest and have fun, but don't let it be an excuse to overspend and ditch your budget. Make this season a breeze by creating a comprehensive summer budget tailored to your specific needs.

Categorize your spending for entertainment, travel and utilities. Since summer often brings changes in expenses, prioritize your spending and factor in potential unexpected costs. This way, you'll ensure you have allocated funds for every aspect of your summer plans, allowing you to enjoy the season without financial stress.
Take advantage of the summer discounts
The scorching heat isn't the only thing rising this summer—so are the hottest discounts on appliances and gadgets! Dive into the season as a smart shopper by seeking out the latest summer deals at your favorite stores.

These deals aren't just about saving money, they're about aligning your budget with your summer needs, and having options to better manage your cash flow. By strategically shopping and focusing on your essential purchases, you can enjoy significant cost savings while avoiding the temptation to overspend. Remember, smart shopping doesn't mean buying less, it means buying better.
Utilize energy-efficient appliances
Summer in the Philippines is synonymous with scorching heat, making appliances like powerful fans, refrigerators and air conditioners essential. But choosing the right ones can impact your budget significantly, like appliances powered by inverter technology.

Unlike traditional appliances, inverter models are designed to optimize energy consumption. This translates to a cost-effective and ecofriendly solution for battling the summer heat. These energy-efficient wonders offer the ultimate double win: keeping you cool while keeping your electricity bills down.
Plan summer travels wisely
Rest and relaxation are a must do during summer, but you will only get nothing but stress when these are not planned strategically. If a summer escape is on your mind, do it smarter, not harder. Start by exploring budget-friendly destinations and consider visiting during off-peak times. This not only avoids crowds, but also unlocks hidden gems that won't break the bank.

Another pro tip to follow is to book in advance to not only secure your spot early, but also unlock discounted prices on flight and accommodations. Remember, a little strategic planning goes a long way to ensure you make the most of your summer adventure without burning a hole in your pocket.
Find alternative summer activities on a budget
If you want to celebrate fun in summer on a budget, don’t worry because it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. This is the perfect time to explore rewarding and relaxing activities that won’t break the bank.

Gather your loved ones for a picnic in a scenic park, enjoying fresh air, delicious homemade food, and quality time together. You can also head to a nearby mall for a cool escape. Relax in a café, grab a meal at a restaurant, or simply browse the shops.

Lastly, if you have a family, create lasting memories at home. Play outdoor games with your kids, have a movie night with refreshing drinks, or simply chill out with the cool air provided by your inverter AC.
